Whenever I go shopping and want to pick up yogurt, 9 times out of 10, I get Greek yogurt because I love how thick it is.
In the summer, I occasionally get frozen yogurt as a treat and for something different than ice cream.
The reason I’m bringing this up is because Dial has come out with a new body wash that’s both intriguing and that’ll have you smacking your lips. Seriously, it sounds like it’s good enough to eat – but don’t be tempted to try a mouthful! 😉
It’s called the Dial Frozen Yogurt Cooling Body Wash, and the label looks mighty delicious! (No, I didn’t have a test taste of body wash!)
Interesting Thing: See on the label? It’s spelled as “yogourt”? Since in Canada, bilingual packaging is needed for legal reasons, “yogourt” is the common spelling. But “yogurt” is the popular Canadian spelling of it in general that even the official press release about this product uses it. (I genuinely find stuff like this interesting. Is it just me?)

Dial Frozen Yogurt Cooling Body Wash Review
Be forewarned that when you start showering with the Dial Frozen Yogurt Cooling Body Wash, you may begin to crave the cold treat! (You may even be tempted to taste the body wash, but don’t do it!) 😉
When I began lathering up, I immediately thought it smelled delicious, exactly like the dessert it’s named after. I could smell the creaminess, and the fruit.
For the fruit, I mainly smelled raspberry, because there was a distinct tartness.
This aroma bursts in the shower, but it’s not so potent that you’ll have to be worrying about it clashing with your eau de parfum after you’ve rinsed and dried yourself.
These are the type of body washes that I prefer – explode in the shower with fragrance, but it won’t linger long after.
Before I tried this body wash, I never heard of cooling body washes, and I didn’t think that it’d work.
Well, I’m glad to have been proven wrong!
It’s such an interesting feeling to lather this up and feel your skin getting cool. (I didn’t feel my skin tingling, but it still felt cooling. To the touch, my skin didn’t feel any different in temperature, so it’s a neat sense experience!)
I always like hot showers (except for in the summer), so when I tested out this product, I wasn’t so sure I’d feel the claimed cooling effect. To my surprise, I noticed that my skin felt cool…as if your skin is wet and there’s a light breeze blowing.
Haha, when the weather’s chilly like it is now, I don’t recommend it. However, in the summer, I think this product will be awesome because it has that extra-refreshing feeling!
When I looked at the ingredient list, I noticed that Menthol was on there. That most certainly explains the cooling feeling. (Menthol is commonly used in lots of soothing skincare like foot creams.)
After showering with this, my skin felt clean, but not striped of the necessary natural oil. My skin was soft, so the moisturizers in this definitely worked to keep my skin in good condition. (And I didn’t feel any gross film of product left on my skin.) This is due to the fact that the body wash contains real yogurt proteins!
The Dial Frozen Yogurt Cooling Body Wash retails for just $4.99 CAD, which is excellent because an entire bottle lasts for such a long time! This product is proof that you don’t have to skimp on shower products, even if you’re on a budget.
This bottle could easily last for several weeks, and if you broke down the price, it would come to just pennies per day!
Below is the official press release sent to me by Dial’s PR, which gives you more detailed information on the new Dial yogurt products!

Final Verdict: 8/10
I really enjoyed using the Dial Frozen Yogurt Cooling Body Wash in the shower. Not only does it smell like dessert and whisk me away when I’m getting clean, but the cooling effect is very different than anything I’ve ever tried. It’s going to be fun to use this more in the summer!
Do you like frozen yogurt? Have you tried any beauty products that have a cooling effect? Are you tired of the long season of cold weather, and are you looking forward to the warm weather to arrive?
